Study Options Open Days November 2016
Study Options Open Days are free information events designed to give students, parents and careers advisors the chance to find out more about studying at Australian and New Zealand universities.
Attending the Open Days is an opportunity not to be missed - these are the only events in the UK where you can meet and talk to a large number of Australian and New Zealand universities face-to-face, and under one roof. Go along to find out more about the universities, the courses available, accommodation options, campus lifestyles and facilities, and more.
Universities confirmed for the November 2016 events are: Australian Catholic University, Macquarie University, The University of Newcastle, The University of Sydney, UNSW Australia, Bond University, Griffith University, James Cook University, The University of Queensland, The University of Tasmania, La Trobe University, Monash University, The University of Melbourne, The University of Western Australia, The University of Waikato, The University of Canterbury, The University of Otago
The Study Options team and all the university representatives will travel to events in Edinburgh, Dundee, Manchester and London this November - even if you have to travel to get an event, it will be quicker and less expensive than travelling to Australia or New Zealand to visit universities! In November the Open Days events will be held on:
Thursday 17 November, 10.30am - 12.30pm: Edinburgh Napier University
Thursday 17 November, 2.45pm - 4.25pm: University of Dundee (current students only)
Friday 18 November, 1pm - 4.30pm: The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester
Saturday 19 November, 1.30pm - 6pm: Australia House, London
More details about the Open Days - including locations, maps and opening times – are on this website. There are no scheduled events within the Open Days so you don’t have to turn up at a particular time, but if a university is very popular, you might have to wait your turn. It’s a good idea to arrive early if you can – the representatives are so helpful that you could be chatting for some time!
Study Options is the official representative of Australian and New Zealand universities in the UK, which means they can help you start your research before the Open Days. Contact Study Options for lists of the courses available in your chosen subject and a copy of their general prospectus, the useful "Guide 2017", which contains information about all the universities. Doing this kind of preparation beforehand will allow you to narrow down which universities to talk to, and what questions you want to ask them.
The friendly Study Options team will be at each event too so please ask them about any aspect of studying in Australia or New Zealand, including visas, costs, scholarships or just which universities are best to speak to about your chosen course. You can bring your application with you to the Open Days and submit it there if you wish. Qualified applicants are welcome to apply for application fee waivers at the Open Days, please speak to the individual university representative to have this applied.
The Open Days are totally free for students to attend, but you will need to register online beforehand via the Open Days website, so that Study Options can help you make the most out of the event.
